Weather set to improve

Tagged with:

It's been a bit dreary today - dull, damp and breezy with low cloud, mist and hill fog.

However some people are probably glad to see the rain as last month was the driest March in Wales since 1961!

Most of the rain in Wales falls on the mountains and in the last 24 hours Capel Curig in Snowdonia has had over 50mm, 2 inches, but on the north coast and in Flintshire, in the rain-shadow, there has hardly been any.

On Wednesday, the weather is set to improve with drier and warmer air moving northwards from France.

The day will start grey with some low cloud and drizzle in parts of the west and northwest but most of Wales should brighten-up with a good deal of sunshine.

However, low cloud and drizzle may return to Anglesey, Gwynedd and Pembrokeshire by mid to late afternoon.

Top temperatures 18 or 19 Celsius with a south to south-westerly breeze but cooler on the coast where the wind is off the sea. The wind will be strong in the northwest with gusts of around 45 mph on Anglesey.

On Thursday a weak cold front will move south through Wales so it will cloud over for a time with a few spots of drizzle.

Beyond that high pressure in the Atlantic is going to take control, moving across Britain.

So, the outlook for Friday and Saturday is very promising with fine, settled weather and plenty of sunshine!

It will also be warming-up too, so ideal for a BBQ but if you're a gardener it will turn cool overnight with a touch of ground frost inland.
